The New BAKE! Schedule Is Out! Classes Are Selling Out—Sign Up Today

We offered 55 Fancy Schmancy Holiday Cookie Classes this year. Almost every spot has sold out!

Have you heard the great news? Just last week, BAKE!, Zingerman’s Bakehouse’s hands-on teaching bakery,  released a whole new schedule of classes for August 2017-January 2018. There’s already been quite the frenzy—almost all 55 of our Fancy Schmancy Holiday Cookie classes have sold out and many others are going fast, too!

We’re also offering a slew of classes we’ve never offered before. “After having very few new classes for the last year, we’re rolling out a busy fall with about a dozen new choices. Our Principal, Sara Molinaro, is a bread gal, and she’s developed three new bread classes!” says Bakehouse co-managing partner Amy Emberling. Naturally Leavened Breads 2.0, which will introduce students to the liquid levain method, is one of those classes, and Amy thinks it will be an enriching experience.

Here are some other fantastic new classes you won’t want to miss:

Mexican Treats: Learn to make conchas, the panaderia staple that look like sea shells, and cochinitos de piloncillo, pig shaped soft cookies sweetened with spiced sugar cane syrup. We’ll also demonstrate churros, a piped and fried cinnamon sugar pastry. Spots still available—sign up here! 

Signature Sour Cream Coffee Cake: “For the first time in years we’ll be teaching our sour cream coffeecake recipe. Students have wanted this class for a long time and we’ve been waiting until the Bakehouse cookbook was published before teaching it regularly. Now’s the time!” says Amy.

Learn the recipe for our signature sour cream coffee cake with ribbons of cinnamon brown sugar and toasted walnuts. It’s a Bakehouse classic that graces the cover of our new cookbook (being released October 2017), not to mention our most popular mail order gift. In class you’ll also make the lemon poppyseed version. The sour cream coffee cake batter is a scrumptious start that can easily be dressed up with other mix ins at home. This is sure to be a treasured recipe in your house for years to come! Spots still available—sign up here!

Amy & Franks Favorites: Only two dates! After 25 years in business it will be impossible to choose favorites, but they’ll try. To celebrate the release of the new Zingerman’s Bakehouse cookbook (October 2017), Bakehouse owners and bakers Amy Emberling and Frank Carollo will guide you through making a couple of their favorite recipes (It’s the first time they’ve taught together in years!). Then they’ll sign your personal copy of our new 240 page book complete with Bakehouse stories and more than 60 recipes. Spots (but not many!) still available—sign up here!

And don’t forget our classic classes, like Mambo Italiano: Italian Breads, Detroit Classics, Pizza: the Other American Pie, Bake Me a Cake, and more. We’re not kidding, though, sign up soon because they sell out!
